Hi Shan, I wouldnt go down the steriods avenue for a baby at all.... do some proper research before you do that ! and Antibotics kill any good gut probiotics for digestion which can result in eczema / allergies etc... again not something that I would personally do. Seriously though the shower, humidifier & vit C ( even if you take it yourself if your breastfeeding ) will work. As someone else said it is possibly contagious - well thats why you need to kill the bug in the throat. I speak from experience.

instead of a humidifier steam up the bathroom like you would during a hot shower and sit in there with him for a little while. it will clear up his breathing. and then put a vaporizor by his bed while he sleeps and he will feel better soon. if it gets too bad you will have to take him to the doc. i personally never had to treat my child for it but thats what my mom always did for my brother. he got it all the time. worked pretty good too.
